A 30-pound cat named Zack who took the internet by storm this week has a new home.

The Michigan Humane Society said Zack got adopted and his new family will help him on his journey to slim down.

“He’s currently over 30 pounds and our medical staff is trying to get him to a healthier weight. They should change his diet first. I’m sure his new family will make sure he’s down to kitten size.
